Whether you manage a large or small business, whether you are aware of all the regulations or not, your business is subject to a tremendous number of State and Federal employment laws.
These laws cover nearly every aspect of the employment relationship. Further, the actions of people on your leadership team are subject to these regulations. A typical small employer with less than 100 employees may be subject to over 40 State, Federal, County and/or City employment related laws. These laws contain hundreds of requirements addressing everything from hiring to firing and actions during the employment process. Changes in many of these laws and regulations are enacted with little or no publicity, making it difficult for even large employers to be current. Case law, interpretations or enforcement may change from year to year.
These laws and regulations are complex and understanding how they translate to daily operations can be intimidating. Many companies find that relying on an outside attorney can not only be costly, but not pragmatic. Just know what CAN’T be done doesn’t help in the real world of business.
